    With birthdays, we all face a struggle with what we need to do the entire day. For most of us, a birthday is a hectic day. We plan parties and events to host our friends and families with fiestas with extravagant culinary and mixologists. Drinks play a major role in today’s birthday parties. Don’t we all agree? 

    There is still a majority of us who like to celebrate our birthdays alone. Celebrating your birthday alone is an art to master. All of us can’t be surrounded by people all the time, can we? For instance, we hit a pandemic and we were on a worldwide lockdown. Many of us had our birthdays during the lockdowns and had no option but to spend them alone. What did you do? 

    Here’s a list of things you can do alone on your birthday if you’re overwhelmed or just want to spend some ‘me’ time! 


    Shopping is an activity loved by all, in a certain amount and budget obviously. You can go on a shopping spree with a budget in mind and things you need for your daily or rather for things you don’t even need. It’s your birthday and you can afford to have silly expenses on 1 day of the year, can’t you? 


    lunch for birthday

    Lunch is an activity we do every single day with our friends at work or with our families at home. Why not try having lunch by yourself at a restaurant? Eat something you relish. Know your taste buds, explore nearby, small cafes (10 Cafes In Delhi NCR That Are Perfect For A Brunch Date). They could turn out to be local gems. Being confident eating alone is something everybody should master. It’s a characteristic that is essential for living in a social world where everything is uncertain, isn’t it?


    movie for birthday

    Catch up on your favourite movie. Or a movie spree? A movie theatre is a good place to be by yourself with a tub of popcorn and a large glass of cola, right? You could also be at home, curled up in bed with a blanket and your pet, doing the exact same thing but with more munchies! You can put on a spree of your favourite classic movies of all time! Seems like an amazing idea to us!

    Oh! A Spa! What’s better than a spa day on your birthday? Book yourself a spa weekend or a day at your favourite spa salon and have a day full of pampering with every possible massage you desire. The aromatherapy will help you heal through things while giving you the positive vibrations you need. 

    Solo Trip

    The ideal thing to do on your birthday, alone, is to go on a solo trip, maybe to the hills? Plan a trip by yourself, for yourself. Be with yourself and adventure. Get to know the local community, stay amongst them and be a part of them. It’s going to give you a great sense of being ‘you’.
